Legal Education and Uniform Laws Group

Who We Are

This group differs from other RPTE groups in that it surveys activities and information across the entire spectrum of property topics, rather than focusing on specific substantive areas. The group consists of the Legal Education and Uniform Laws committees. One of the group’s primary activities is Professors’ Corner, a free monthly webinar (on the second Wednesday of every month) which features a panel of law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate or trust and estate practitioners and scholars.

Corner webinar on 'Crowdfunding: The New Thing in Financing Development

August 12, 2015

Join for the August 12th Professors' Corner webinar on "Crowdfunding: The New Thing in Financing Development."


Funding real estate development and initial business start-ups from the crowd is becoming the popular alternative to traditional equity and debt offerings. While this new thing promises simplicity and speed, it is not without constraints. Our August speakers will discuss the legal rules and the practical mechanics for using this non-traditional structure for development.

Our speakers will include Professor Joan MacLeod Heminway, W.P. Toms Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Tennessee College of Law and Attorney John C. Lettera, Partner, LMA Law Group, LLP, Purchase, New York; Adjunct Professor of Law, Pace Law School.


The Professors' Corner is a FREE monthly webinar featuring a panel of law professors addressing topics of interest to practitioners of real estate and trust & estate law. Please note that CLE credit is NOT offered for Professors' Corner programs.


This webinar series is sponsored by the Legal Education and Uniform Laws Group of the ABA Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law.
